This place is a standard old school multi star hotel and is luxurious, clean, multi-facility enabled. Their grand buffet at the coffee shop is apparently most famous and worth a try.

The hotel was situated at about 8 minutes walk to work the Dutch hospital. It was quite outdated. The staff were polite and generally helpful when we asked for a late check out. However, it was full of people, so expect a small queue for checking in. The breakfast had a choice of western, Indian and Sri Lankan.

One of Colombo's oldest still is one of its best! The ambience here isn't much. At least when I went there for their dinner buffet. But the buffet! Oh my! Superb selection for appetizers and main courses! Love the selection of buns and baguettes here too. The tomato bun was so nice and I've never had anything like that before....

Also I was on the executive club floor but there was no separate check in and the lounge was closed throughout my stay there. The shops downstairs are...

The hotel is generally aged. When you enter it you can see that this hotel has not been renovated in the last 25 years. The location of the Galadari Hotel is wonderful, it is walk distance to the Galle Face Green, Dutch Hospital and Crescat Mall. Rooms are quite clean. Staff is very courteous.
